Funny thing is, all the details are correct in details section so don't know how he's got the title so badly wrong. Think there's something wrong with that bottle cage too. :lol:

There's some nice parts fitted there boys the rims are eyeleted and the groupset ain't bad either (not my bike by the way) but looking at the parts like the farmer john's nephew front tyre this was one or Rayleigh's better bikes

I totally agree its a nice bike for someone, I've just bought an 89 Raleigh Mirage (my first MTB I ever owned) which is basically the same bike but with shimano components. That's why I posted it as know one looking for a Raleigh Montage would have found it with that title.
